A Mexico City man suffered a fatal selfie inflicted wound when he tried to take a picture of himself holding a gun to his head.

According to ABC Bakersfield, Oscar Otero Aguilar, 21, was taking the selfie for his Facebook page last week when the borrowed gun he was waving around discharged during the photo shoot.

"I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt," ABC Bakersfield reported a neighbour saying. "I called the police and when they arrived they found that he was still alive."

Aguilar died on the way to hospital.
